I love this recipe! It is what I'm always asked to bring to 4th of July and any other party we have.

Tangy Pasta Salad
6 slices Oscar Meyer Bacon
1-1/4 cup Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
2 Tbsp. Sugar
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1 pkg (16 oz) pasta (tube, macaroni or corkscrew) cooked, drained.
3 carrots, shredded (optional)
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red onion
COOK bacon in skillet on medium heat to desired crispness. Drain bacon, reserve 2 Tbsp drippings. Crumble bacon and set aside.
MIX reserved drippings, salad dressing, sugar and garlic salt in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients; mix lightly. Refrigerate.
I always double this recipe for big parties, plus it's great left over! I usually just mix all the ingredients in the pot I cooked the pasta in after I drain it. It saves me from getting another bowl dirty and it's huge so there is a lot of room to mix it all up, especially if you double the recipe. Then I put it in a large Tupperware container and refrigerate! Sometimes before I serve it I add more Miracle Whip because I think it seems like the pasta soaked it all up overnight and it can seem a little dry. But that's just my opinion.
I hope you and your family enjoy this as much as ours!
Enjoy being a Mom All Day!
